Back in March I bought a pair of Sony earbuds. They were cheap to begin with and also on sale so I got them for only $10. I paid the extra $7 to get a 2 year warranty. One ear died tonight so I'm going to bike over to Best Buy to replace them tomorrow. I'm interested to see how well their warranty system works. The last time I used it was for my SL100 so that must have been around 09 or so. I have pleasant memories of it being no hassle back then so I'm hoping it will be the same tomorrow.
